HELLO, I’m Aideen McCartney
I’m an accredited Play Therapist and parenting coach working with children and families in Central and South London.
Raised in Australia and New Zealand, over the past 15 years I’ve worked as a play therapist, teacher, nanny and children's theatre performer in Australia, South Korea and the UK.
I've always been passionate about the importance of play and creativity as part of a healthy childhood and my love for working with children has given me a wealth of diverse experience.
My special interest is in helping parents to step into the world of their children and strengthening family relationships through creativity, curiosity and play.
I'm a registered member of BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), am DBS checked, hold professional liability insurance and attend regular clinical supervision.
